Results showed that patients who had three or four of the altered genes had worse disease-free survival
It’s high time to act if we want to reach the goals of the Paris Accord, says climate researcher Hans Joachim Schellnhuber. He also urges scientists to come out of their ivory towers to fight climate denial.DW: Where are we at with the world’s carbon budget – how much have we spent and how much …
Experts living at the Hawaii Mars simulation dome have exited the structure where they lived in isolation for 365 days. The group lived on the Mauna Loa mountain and could go out only wearing spacesuits.
As the Juno spacecraft zooms towards Jupiter at 200 times the speed of sound, NASA scientists on earth are nervously hoping it hits the brakes at just the right time to get pulled into Jupiter’s orbit.
Scientists have been able to more directly link extreme weather – like the floods that hit Central Europe last month – to climate change. A changed climate could also mean hotter summers – and with that, more deaths.
Of the 900 Nobel Prizes since 1901, only about 50 have gone to women. This has nothing to do with women’s abilities as scientists.
Great Britain and the EU are closely tied together in the field of research, whether in the exchange of scientists, financing and in setting common standards. What now? DW provides as many answers as possible.
A recent study says five islands in the Solomons have vanished and others are suffering severe erosion. Scientists say information from the study could help with future research into the effects of sea-level rise.
Experts say that conserving global biodiversity will require spending tens of billions of additional dollars on nature reserves every year. But where could the money come from? DW asked some specialists for their ideas.
Scientists have made a promising discovery: three potentially inhabitable planets. But don’t pack your bags just yet – it is far too early to say whether we could really live there.
About 150,000 penguins have perished in Antarctica after a huge iceberg cut off their access to the sea, forcing them to trek dozens of kilometers to find food. Scientists warn the birds could be gone within 20 years.
Two major agencies disagree over whether the world’s most-used pesticide, glyphosate, is safe. As the European Union debates the topic, nearly 100 scientists from around the world have urged it to heed safety warnings. It’s the most commonly used – and perhaps also most controversial – pesticide in the world: glyphosate. Opinion between the European …
As leaders negotiate a climate pact, a new study calls for more ambitious targets to avoid irreversible impacts on regions of ice and snow. Otherwise water and food shortages, along with rising seas, could be inevitable. At first sight, melting ice and snow may not seem relevant or threatening to the majority of people. Yet …
Physicists from Belgium have used mathematics to show that neither Russia’s nor Turkey’s version of the downing of a military jet adds up. Turkey’s downing of the Russian jet has strained relations between the countries. Astrophysicists Tom van Doorsslaere and Giovanni Lapenta from the University of Leuven in Belgium have questioned the statements made by …
When new planets absorb nearby gases and dust they get hot. A strange light is emitted as a result and that has allowed researchers to watch a distant exoplanet as it is being formed. Using a novel technique, scientists have observed a “baby planet” being formed nearly 450 light years away. Researchers used telescopes in …
